Belated Valentines celebration. Wife loves Riverstone salad. I had delicious lobster bisque and excellently prepared scallops. My wife loves the sirloin with the rosemary fig sauce. Ethan our waiter was excellent also. After dinner we enjoyed an excellent trio who entertained us with great music.

I watched others have bad to no service and leave because of it. Noise was a little loud for us. Food steaks were great but side dishes very small for the price. Salad was good what there was of it . We had the only fair waitress and others had inattentive servers. The need better training and better direction or let them go. Noone wants this kind of service when they go out for special occasions.

Thank you MickyW for taking the time to understand were we RiverStone fell short. I believe our staff is incredible and truly care for the experience of all our guests, as a director it is clear to me that we did not set our team up for success. I do apologize for the poor experience that you not only had but you witnessed and hope that you will give us another shot in the future to change your opinion of us.

Unfortunately, I had to write a review because of the terrible experience we had there on Valentine's night. We reserved a table a month in advance to be in the main room but were seated in overflow dining which was awkward. We waited an hour for food that was mediocre. The staff was decent but not overly friendly or accommodating. The table next to us got up and left after 30 mins of not even being asked for a drink. We received a $25.00 GC when we left to come back again courtesy. We didn't complain but management knew there were issues and we were not happy. Still did nothing about my $150.00 bill for food and drink, I didn't even finish the plate...

The food was phenomenal. We went for their Valentines Day candlelit dinner. When you walk in, they take your coats and give you a coat tag, then they take you to your seat. I was at this restaurant when it was with different owners and the new décor is timeless yet modern. There are beautiful partitions in areas so when you are dining with others, it feels like it is only your dining party in the restaurant. Some people may think this restaurant is expensive, however, you also have to understand what you are being served. My husband ordered a bone in ribeye, which came with salad, mashed potatoes, and asparagus. I ordered salmon with pineapple/mango salsa, asparagus, salad, and a mushroom risotto cake. He had a drink as did I, plus we each ordered dessert. My dessert was a bread pudding cake served with a toffee sauce (reminds me a bit of Gordon Ramsey's Sticky Toffee Pudding), and my husband had the chocolate lovers cake. My goodness, these desserts were so good. The chocolate cake was so rich. It looked similar to a chocolate cheesecake, but it was more of a mousse/cheesecake consistency with a crust made of ganache. Now, given the ambiance, the service, and the food, plus drinks, I did not think $100 was bad at all. I will most definitely go back and I hope everyone gives it a try. Oh, they also do fish on Fridays!

This was our first dining experience since this restaurant became RiverStone. This is a beautiful venue. We celebrated a birthday and couldn't have been more happy with the whole dining experience. The food was excellent (had filet, alaskan halibut and shrimp linguini). Wait staff was attentive but not hovering. Also had a great appetizer and bottle of wine. Look forward to our next visit.

We had an excellent dinner on Wednesday evening. We arrived early so we could have a drink at the bar prior to being seated for dinner. The venue is absolutely beautiful. The service was outstanding as well as the meal. We ordered the fillets and they were cooked to perfection. The owner took time to introduce himself and we shared a nice conversation. Thank you!

5 of our family enjoyed dining at the fine dining restaurant, to celebrate a birthday. We all enjoyed our entries and drinks. We are a fussy group, and all were satisfied, right down to the desserts. We have already told friends to give it a try. WE plan to return soon.

Our server was wonderful and attentive. The food was excellent and the portion size was larger than expected. With a reservation, we were seated right away and made very conformable. The menu was well laid out and prices are very reasonable.
The only reason that I didn't give 5 starts on ambiance, is that the place kinda looks like Heaven's waiting room. Not in a bad way, but a little distracting to me.

Everything was excellent! Food was excellent! Staff, management and owner were excellent! Very quiet and nice evening with great views out the back of the restaurant. Growing crowds for fish on Friday nights, so make reservations to make sure they know you're coming and can plan to feed the bigger crowds they're getting.

Went on a Wednesday evening, just two of us. Sat outside, there were no other customers so that was certainly a quiet atmosphere with a beautiful view behind the restaurant. We took the recommendation of the manager to try the filet and we both thought it was delicious. Reasonably priced, good portions and excellent taste (filet, broccolinni and garlic mashed/duck fat potatoes).

Waitress was friendly, on point and attentive yet letting us enjoy the meal and atmosphere. Would highly recommend and we will be visiting again soon!

4 of us dined together on a Friday evening. 3 got the cod fish fry and all were pleased. I had the salmon and it was excellent. The house salad was particularly good, and we all enjoyed the citrus dressing. There is no other restaurant in the area that has such beautiful decor and ambiance. Because it was warm we enjoyed sitting on the back patio; also just gorgeous. No doubt a warm weather wedding that could be done outside would absolutely be fabulous. Marty Harrison
